NETIO PowerCable REST 101G is a smart WiFi power socket for integration with third-party systems using open API.  
PowerCable is a smart power extension cable with a WiFi connection to a LAN. Its web interface can be used to display the energy metering values and turn on/off the controlled output power socket. 

PowerCable REST allows reading the measurements and controlling the output using one of three http-based REST protocols - XML, JSON or URL API.  

The PowerCable metered power socket connects to the network over WiFi (internal antenna). The NETIO WiFi Reconnect feature ensures stable availability of the device in an ordinary WiFi network. 
PowerCable REST 101x can be controlled with one of 3 different M2M protocols that communicate over http (default port 80) and can be protected with a password. The JSON and XML protocols transfer a text file using http get/post. 
WiFi connection, Auto-Reconnect
Electrical measurements (V, A, W, kWh, TPF, Hz, Phase), accuracy <1%
IOC – Output state independent on FW updates
ZCS – Zero-current switching
The PowerCable REST WiFi power outlet supports IOC (Independent Output Control); the state of the output is not affected by weak WiFi signal, restart of the WiFi network layer, or even firmware upgrade. The PowerUp state of the output is configurable (On/Off/Last). 
ZCS (Zero Current Switching) support is important in situations where the output is switched more often than just a few times per day. ZCS makes sure that the output relay switches when the immediate current is zero. 
ZCS reduces the stress on the connected electrical appliances, increasing the lifetime in case of frequent switching of appliances with a high inrush current. High inrush current is typical for switching supplies common in IT equipment.  
ZCS is suitable for all types of appliances – capacitive loads as well as inductive loads (transformers, motors).
The operating temperature range of NETIO PowerCable REST 101x is -10 to 65°C (at 65°C, the maximum current is limited to 5A).

No special mobile application is needed for installing the product and connecting it to a WiFi network. PowerCable REST works as a WiFi AP and an integrated web wizard guides through the configuration, including the selection of a WiFi network from a list. The setup process is simple and fast. 
NETIO PowerCable REST 101x, a smart WiFi power socket for IT applications, is an ideal solution for remote control and metering of 230V power sockets outside electrical cabinets. 
The metered power outlet can be controlled over a LAN from a custom application, VoIP phone, Node-RED or Raspberry Pi. For examples, see the Application Notes (ANxx) at the manufacturer’s website. 
101x – The “x” denotes different types of plugs and sockets
PowerCable REST 101x is supplied in several versions depending on the electrical socket type (as used in different countries). All 101x models come with two 0.55m cables with the corresponding electrical socket and plug types.
